    Hosted by Local Food Shift Group, and featuring Erika Block (founder of Local Orbit), the Hub Camp is a three-day, hands-on workshop for entrepreneurs working to aggregate and distribute food from local farms to chefs, schools, hospitals, retailers and other wholesale customers. The Hub Camp is uniquely focused on practical skills and best practices learned from successful local food distribution businesses across the country. As one of the attendees of the recent Hub Camp in Michigan said, “I’ve gotten more from three days at Hub Camp than from three years of going to conferences and talks about local food distribution.” The attendees are operators, or potential operators, of businesses that are creating shorter, more transparent supply chains and increasing marketplace opportunities for local producers. The interactive format is structured with flexibility to address the individual needs of each participant.
